WASHINGTON , March 15,18Sr > .
I doubt whether Washington soci
ety will be able to survive one of Mr
Cleveland's innovations upon the ens
toms of the Capital , which is the get
ting up in the morning , eating
breakfast , and at work by 9 o'clock
The White House has known nosucl
plebian way of doing things in the
last half century. Arthur did his
executive work by the midnight oil ,
and his sleeping through the first hall
of the day. He was rarely to bo seen
before twelve o'clock , and of course
was inaccessible to those Congress
men who make , their daily rounds ol
the departments. before the meeting
of Congress at noon. It was the ex
ample set by the occupants of the
White House in times past , that has
made all Washington go to bed in the
morning and get up at midday. So
that the eight o'clock breakfa'st that
President Cleveland has regularly ta
ken since entering upon the oflicial
duties , has set us all so.badly by the
ears that the President must be im
portuned to fair in with the estab
lished precedent and take his break
fast in bed.
The House performed a very com
mendable piece of work in its last
hours by putting General Grant on
the retired list , where he will pretty
certain to be placed beyond the reach
of immediate want , if he will only
keep his family and himself aloof
from the financial sharks of Wall
street. The pay and the perquisites
of a retired General of this rank ,
amounts to about nineteen thousand
dollars per year , which surely ought
to be enough to keep .a private family
in a comfortable situation even in
New York City. The present pre
carious condition of General Grant's
health has aroused sympathy for him
and his family throughout the country ,
and at the adjournment of Congress
last Wednesday more than half a million -
lion of people had forwarded to Con
gress their appeals to that body to
enact the retirement bill.
John Quiricy Adams became a
member of the lower house of Con
gress after having served a term as
President of the United States , be
cause , as he declared , , the one posi
tion was equal in ever } ' way to the
other. Now , however , we have Con
gressmen and reverend Senators who
are not- only willing but anxious to
serve their country in any possible or
impossible capacity , so long as they
can have their names retained upon
the Government pay roll. To day
some of the ex-members of the recent
ly expired Congress are applicants
for menial positions in the next Con
gress , just as the ex members of a I
previous Congress have accepted ser
vice in this. Fifty of these members
have got to be provided for , though
why a defeated candidate for reelection
tion should not suffer the consequen
ces of his own unpopularity is un
In the admirable closing address
of Speaker Carlisle , he paid his par
ticular respects to the modern Con
gressmen who deem it his peculiar
mission to draft bills and introduce
them. The Speaker said that from
the organization of the Government
to the close of the Twenty-Fifth Con
gress , a period of fifty years , there
had been but eight thousand seven
hundred and seventy-seven bills in
troduced , while in the present Con
gress alone there had been eight
thousand six hundred and thirty ! If
this practice does not require some
constitutional or other treatment , I
'know of no governmental abuse that
does. Hardly a single appropriation
bill in the general class nowadays , is
not a draft upon the Treasury for
more money than the appropriations
of ten years would cover fifty years
ago , when the net expenditures for
running the Government annually
did not amount to as much as is now
required to build an ordinary public
building in New York , Chicago or
San Francisco. DOM P.EDRO.
EDWARD P. CLAKK , who has been
nominated as assistant secretary of the
interior , is a personal friend of Mr.
Lamar's. He is a man in the neigh
borhood of forty-five years of age , is
a well educated lawyer and a man in
whom Mr. Lamar has every confi
dence. He hails from Vicksburg ,
served in the confederate army as a
colonel , and has never held a public
position of importance. I
.A CHURCH in Isew York has set
apart a large room in the basement
for a skating rink and the proceeds go
to help pay the salary of the pastor.
A rival clergyman has mentioned it
in his sermon and calls it the "church
of the Holy Rink. "
